This red wine made from Bordeaux grapes — cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc — along with syrah has turned out to be a harmonious and complex blend at a very appealing price. It's a smooth, subtle and layered wine with flavors of black cherry, smoked meat, herbs and earth. It's at a good state of maturity now but will only get better over the next 5 to 10 years.
From: Toscana, Italy
Serve with: Pasta, beef, lamb
Wine Find: 2007 Rubbia del Colle Rabuccolo
